Several Internet sites say that "The proper way to write 49 is XLIX, not IL", but this page mentions it nowhere. Do any pages at Wikipedia mention this?? (unsigned)

See Roman numerals. There's no "one correct" way to write 49. The Romans certainly wouldn't have cared. XLIX is the more usual these days. - Nunh-huh 23:35, 15 Mar 2004 (UTC)

I suppose that IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII is out of the question? --Dante Alighieri | Talk 08:33, Feb 7, 2005 (UTC)

## In religion

In this section of the article, the reader is told that '[i]n Psalm 49, the 49th word from the beginning is Shake, and the 49th word from the end is Spear.' This utter nonsense. The Psalm in question is number 46 in the King James Bible, and it is 46 words from the beginning and 47 from the end. It is this type of unresearched rubbish that makes so many people question the validity of wikipedia as a reliable source of information. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.86.172.141 (talk) 13:48, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
